So I felt like making some oatmeal cookies for my husband and myself (I very rarely have such a craving but I do know he has a sweet tooth!). Halfway through making a basic cookie for us, I decided we should use ingredients that would also be healthy and therapeutic for Caesar. Caesar really came out ahead with his stash — but we’re hoping people don’t notice us eating the occasional “dog biscuit” ourselves!! Hope your dog will enjoy these as much as ours does! Note: sugar can be replaced with honey or molasses for even healthier benefits! Enjoy!!
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup whole flax seed
1/4 cup ground flax
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds (without shell and unsalted)
1/4 cup frozen wild blueberries (can use fresh if available)
Combine all ingredients with 1/3 cup water, roll out dough and cut into desired cookie shapes. Place on greased cookie tray and bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes until cookies look golden brown. Caesar loves these!!! And ok, we do too…!!
Store in paper bags in fridge for 2 -3 weeks (if they last that long!!)
